When you think of Kloten the first associations are Limi Wäger’s Snus Bar (not sure if the former player is still affiliated with it) and a tragedy in swiss business history. Not that I ever had the pleasure of visiting the Snus Bar, but quite frankly if you’re not into Hockey, what else is there to do in Kloten ? There’s an interesting restaurant called Rias somewhere in the town center. I got a table for one and plopped into the seat. There’s a half open kitchen where you can see what’s going on. I had too smile at the appetizer a pumpkin soup with salty popcorn dusted with herbs. The soup was great, really airy and light, I would have liked the herbs to stick a bit more to the individual kernels. The foie gras variation was a strong showing with no complaints from yours truly. The fish dish again was a nice execution, to be fair I wasn’t convinced if the lobster was needed. Moving on to mains a strong calf cheek with lovely vegetables (crunchy and a nice touch of butter) as well as a good and very tasty mash. To finish off the meal, I had to smile again since I saw a dish called “I don’t know what to get”, which I ordered. The waitress asked me if there was something on the menu which I liked very much and they included the “Hüppen” on the plate of desserts. I was surprised at the strong showing of this restaurant and if you’re in the area I can recommend dining at the Rias. Prices:

    By the way, the Snus bar now belongs to another former ice-hockey star of EHC Kloten (now “Kloten Flyers”): Marcel Wick

      Thanks! Limi Wäger is still my hero.

    Limi was the better player, but Marcel has such a lovely daughter: (Stephanie is on the right. On the left: Wick junior.)
